Old fixed ideas are like fixed bayonets
Market disruptors change modes incrementally
Hence-subsidizing disabled people needing transport
or offering Smartphones to people seeking work
We are cities in gridlock.Most cars are inefficient
in that they carry one passenger and are largely parked.
Roads cost billions and are traffic attractors.
There is a conflict between private and public uses.
Demonstrators point out that destruction of green space for roads
is also inefficient.Mass transit works in densely concentrated areas
but fails the too young,too old,disabled and poor.These are also those
who may have no car,nor access to one.Today,i listened to an elder in a wheelchair-
"I was caught in that storm yesterday,and my electric mobility chair failed".
"How did you solve this?"(i asked)."I got wet!"was the reply.
